My exilim camera is taking black pictures. Two days ago it was fine and all of a sudden when I turn it on the display screen and previous pictures are dark. When I take a picture or video now it is just...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I just tried to turn on my camera for the first time in a really long time and nothing is showing up on the LCD screen. I changed the batteries and they are in the right way and it still will not do...


A couple of things First if batteries were left in the camera the contact surface down inside the camera may be corroded and need cleaning check this with a flashlight. If the battery contact is dark black then it might require some aggressive cleaning. What I use is a piece of light sandpaper formed over a pencil and taped to it set it down inside and spin it lightly to remove as much of the black stuff as possible a Qtip and alcohol will clean out the dust and other partials. Clean off the battery door and clean off the batteries (because you had them in the camera) install the batteries again. If it comes on and works great if it come on but doesn't work correctly then you need to work the camera in.

Working the camera in by turning everything to manual mode including the lens set the ISO speed at 100 aperture 1 stop down from wide open. Set your shutter speed at 1/125 and release the shutter do this three time, set at 1/250 and do it again three times then set to 1/500 and do it three times and again until you reach the cameras fastest shutter speed then back down again. Listen to the sound of the shutter you should hear it increase and decrease in speed. In fact the more you use it the better it will sound.

The screen is black, i cannot see anything on the


First thing to check is to make sure that you didn't just accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera, manually turning the screen off. Press the DISP button once with the camera turned on. If that didn't correct the problem, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras.

Shutter will not close!


very small dust particals are the reason of this problem.I m suggesting an idea but apply it on your own risk.Keep camera in off position then slightly strick with ur fingernale around the lens ring evenly.This can make the lens shutter contrct.Once the shutter closed,clean gently with a painting brush over the edges where shutter slides from.do this for several times so that any hard dust partical causing may removed.do not insert anything inside.

OK I know whats wrong with this one, because my cmaera did the same thing. The outside shutter in the lens opens, right? Well, the inside shutter is stuck. Its staying shut. Take the camera apart(or if you dont feel comfortable doing it yourself, take it to a expert)and tap the side gently, it should fix itslef like that. If not, its the same problme, but you'll have to take it in somewhere.

Black Lcd and pictures.


The problem you are experiencing is due to the shutter being stuck closed. Normally the shutter is kept open while you compose the image, and then when you push the button it closes and the CCD records what it was seeing at that moment. When the shutter is stuck the image is blocked from reaching the CCD at all times so you can see nothing. Unfortunately the shutter is a tiny delicate component buried deep within the lens assembly and is not accessible without complete disassembly. I would suggest finding a repair center to ship the camera to, or replacing the camera. I would definitely not _gently_ tap the camera on a hard surface to possibly dislodge a slightly stuck shutter blade. This could easily cause further damage to the camera. However, you are not me. ;) David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Canon A40 Shutter Stuck The Camera works fine with all icons but it appears that the shutter is stuck open causing a black screen. Please advise how to solve this problem by myself. thanks and regards


It is impossible for the Shutter to be stuck, as the A40 does not have a Shutter. Sounds like you have a bad image sensor. I would contact Canon about this as they acknowledge a defective sensor in some of their models. However, depending on how old the camera is and depending on if it is one of their recognized defects, you may have to purchase a new one. Wait, what do you mean by shutter? do you mean the little covers on the front that open to exspose the lens? the little curtin like things? Tap on the front this can sometimes snap them open. If you can see the glass in the front and its still black, make sure your "display" button is not set to the off mode. Sometimes it can power on and the display will be off because it was turned off before the last time you used it. If its still black it could be a bad connection inside, wich controls the camera section inside the unit. If you bang or bump the camera ont he side will the screen flicker or show purple lines? sometimes show an image?
